Summer Band Camps

Summer is a great time to continue having fun and growing as a musician. There are all kinds of excellent opportunities available. Here are a few that you might consider:

Northwest Band Camps at Twin Rocks
Northwest Band Camp is a one-week summer music camp that combines individual and group music instruction along with tons of fun recreation time that give young musicians the opportunity to meet with many other similarly interested students in a fun, friendly, inspiring, and musically intensive environment. There are two one-week summer music camps on the beautiful Oregon coast to choose from that haven given literally generations of musicians fond memories that last a lifetime. The Northwest Band Camps offer both individual and group instruction in concert band, jazz band, and small ensembles.

Eugene Springfield Youth Orchestra Big Band Jazz Camp
Joe Ingram, Jazz Instructor extraordinaire, will be back to lead this great camp in 2018! This class is dedicated to having some musical fun and gaining some extra musical experience during the summer. All traditional big band styles will be explored including swing, Latin, rock, and pop. Camp is for students entering grades 7-12 in fall with one or more years experience. Joe Ingram has taught music for 35 years, the majority of them as band director at Shasta Middle School. In 1993, he was awarded the Presidential Scholars Distinguished Teachers Award in a ceremony at the White House, and in 2005 he was selected as one of six Oregon Middle School Teachers of the Year. This camp is highly recommended for any jazz musicians!
